Did anyone submit to this? Have you heard anything? I know someone who sent in an entry who's wondering whether the shortlist has been made yet.

Tricky, I’m not good at knowing when to nudge! I’ve got one there two but hasn’t been there that long yet

*there too

Me neither. But 3000 entries! (Pathetically, I was really chuffed last month when my short story was longlisted out of a mere 'nearly 300'.) 😩

Hiya I think it might be good to give a gentle nudge, two months seems quite long x

So true, its a lot of entries and from what I read on twitter, it seemed that they spent ages making the final decision, so it could have been very very close.

Let's not lose heart, keep writing and remember it takes just one agent to love your work and want to publish it! smile

Yes, I think I will nudge nicely on monday. Time to send out a raft of new submissions! And I think carry on with this book (yesterday I was all ‘what’s the POINT’ etc, haha).

Did anyone read the first 500 words of the winner?

Yes it was amazing.
